Food is good

Deborah Gargon

The BBQ Sandwich was Good. .with plenty of BBQ and my family ordered the BBQ Salad piled high with BBQ Pork ..the Sauce was served hot VERY TASTY !!!

Kristy Duncan

Good food and friendly folks

James Wesley

Always great. Awesome BBQ, great sides, and always friendly staff. Thank you for the years of wonderful food and great atmosphere, even if y'all are mostly Bama Fans...

Rebecca Richardson

I ate a pork plate with slaw and fries. The food was served hot and the BBQ was delicious. I really liked the slaw made with vinager. The seating was tight and it was very hot in the room. The staff were very nice and helpful.

Marshall Mooney

Great BBQ and great pies.

Sonya Franklin


Brett Ellibee

This location did not have sliced meat. Seems wrong to not server sliced meats when it's a BBQ joint. Will not return, but good thing i got to stare at all the #BAMA memorable hung throughout the storefront. There were some cool autographs, but the food was sub-par.

beau allred

Absolutely the best BBQ south of Big Bob Gibson's. As a matter of fact, unless you just happened to be in Decatur or have to go there on business, Full Moon is far and away the best pulled pork in Bham.

Rickey Dorsey

Great food

TheSouthernSoul P Butler

Food is good but drive thru is very slow.

Remy Helu

Full moon BBQ that is it you need not say anymore. Love you guy's!!

Jeremi Louis

Gave me the wrong food

Randy Davis

Had the regular barbeque sandwich (pork) with fries and a small drink. $11.41. The sandwich was out of this world! The meat was packed on so thick that it didn't start falling off until I was half way through the sandwich! The fries were those thick cut steak fries. Perfect and piping hot. They were just cooked! Although it was pricey for a sandwich, it was well worth it. This dive needs to be on the food network show with Guy if it hasn't been already.

Donnie Chapman

Great! The Service was awesome I will be going back the food is well cooked season and delicious

Regina Paul

Great ribs, pro-tip though: order them bare and then buy sauce from dreamland

tamura hill

Our family enjoyed dinner with excellent service. Thank you!

Bud Rasberry

1st and last time. Lousy at best. Expensive. $32 for 2 basic plates and drinks. Can baked beans. Mac and cheese was all mac. BBQ left much to be desired. Limited menu. No BBQ potato.

Gregory Lewis

Food tasted great just a little tough

Tamika L Bonner

Try their open face sandwich it's really good chicken pork an turkey all are really great

Vanessa Thompson

It was ok, not a great experience. The food was burnt and disappointing because I didn't notice it until I got home

Richard Griffin

It was great like always

James Wilson

Great food and experience as usual

Tyffany Jade Griffin Bell

Great food. Friendly staff. My dads old football pic from his auburn days is on the wall. Rip Daddy

Junea Childers

Got the Greek salad with chicken! Great food! Great service!

Ben Valdez

The smoked turkey sandwich was probably the best I've had in 2 years, at least and good service. All the pictures and autographs, inside might make this place historical. Seeing black folks and patrons in civil attire, speaking respectfully to everyone was the icing on the cake. I'd give 6*, if I could!

robert Robinson

Nice big barbecue outside slice pork sandwich.

Timothy Putman

The ribs are awesome.

Alan Stevens

Good food but very small with limited parking

Elizabeth Keener

Was craving ribs so we went to Full Moon for lunch. Place was crowded, but we were lucky enough to find a table, so yay. I saw they had a new riblet plate, so I decided to try it. No regrets. Meat is very flavorful, riblets were a good size, not the tiny ones you get some places. Fries were good. All around a good experience.

dianna mullen

Great food! The pulled chicken sandwich with White Sauce is so good. Their sauce has a bit of a black pepper kick. Their Half Moon cookies have just the right chewy texture and the chocolate is so smooth. They were super friendly at the drive through, too.

Ross Williams

Absolutely flawless service! Had the pleasure of meeting the manager Daniel Dyson at the Birmingham store and he made us feel like family!

Michael Chandler

Good good but not much room to sit and eat

F Williams

Great Q best in Bham

Sophia Bishop

The best butts in town

J. Jackson

This is probably my favorite barbecue restaurant in Birmingham. My go-to is the pulled pork barbecue sandwich with some fries but sometimes I mix it up and get the brisket or get like the chicken also. They've got plenty of sides to choose from but again you can't go wrong with the sandwich and fries. I would definitely suggest anyone that goes to Alabama or Birmingham specifically to make sure they stop by full moon. My daughter and son loved it thanks.

Teresa Berry

The barbecue ribs are perfect the barbecue pork sandwich seems have a lot of fat in it. There is at least one female working on the inside as a cashier has a nasty disposition so I use the drive-thru. Then one day I was trying to figure out what was up with a nasty attitude my cab driver said she got a nasty attitude everybody notice female I guess you the head person under the manager the manager is nothing nice either he got that smile on his face but it is not for us. So I called corporate office they don't care anything about blacks and correcting the situation and when you ask for Center cut they almost always give you large in I want center cut I don't want meat that is burnt to a crisp on a small in either. Open what you ordered before you leave the drive thru or when you order on the inside. So I decided that I would go online and see what the benefits for if I was an employee and what I read was straight out of slavery all they are giving is flex time because some of my students at minimum wage with no don't know medical and they sit there and they smell that smoke for the entire duration of the last year no joke somebody need to report them as much money as full moon make you see those big rigs they don't even offer employees health benefits wow unbelievable and they stand there all day doing that shift 5 and 6 days a week smelling smoke it's awful. Again the ribs are fabulous and lousy help on the inside need an attitude adjustment Big time.

Cesar DI

I loved the country styled food . That babrbeque turkey sandwich along with the sides and chocolate chip cookie ... man was that good! I went there twice back in decbut didn’t write a review till now.

Solomon Mitchell Jr

Truly the best barbecue around, the sauce is awesome.Try out a moon dog with the chow chow on it and for dessert you can’t beat those cookies

Tim Noojin

No meat on the ribs today. The mac'n cheese was delicious & the sweet tea was good. But after spending $20, we left hungry

Angel Sanchez

Really popular spot to eat at. The problem is there isn't much room but man oh man is it worth it!

William Payne

Great bbq

Kane's Korner

This location is hit or miss with the quality of the foods tenderness and portions but it delivers a good flavor most of the time.

Shelby Rutledge

Wouldn’t have had anyone else cater our wedding! They were able to work within our budget and the service was unbeatable! Daniel Dyson was awesome to work with! He was a true professional and his expertise put me at ease on the big day. Thankful for such an amazing wedding vendor!

Susan Huffman

Full Moon catered my son's wedding rehearsal dinner and everything was fabulous. We didn't have to worry about anything, but enjoying the dinner.

Harmon Winborn

Best place to go for great bar- b-que

Tabitha Younger

Previously read good reviews about this place. Traveled from Atlanta and the food was sub par at best. Sides tasted as if they were out of a can and the meat was cold. The meat was also tough. The food tasted as if it was cooked several days prior and heated in the microwave. Will not go back.

Brandy Gibson

I think they have the best BBQ sauce in the world!!

Josh Keesey

First time eating here. I'm out here visiting from California. Hands down the best bbq I've ever eaten. The staff was very friendly, and funny. Even bought some bbq sauce and chow chow lol. Thanks

Brian Gillock

It's Full Moon... Good eats!

Ann M McCollough

I enjoy full moon bar- b- que but the one on the Southside is skimpy on the food for the price.

Steve Parsons

Give 5 stars for 2 reasons. They offer "outside meat" and the place seems well managed. I'd recommend.

Allen Davis

Good atmosphere good price had a great time enjoyed eatting there. !

Armika Berkley

So I'll start by saying that I'm from Memphis so by Barbeque bar is high. The food was ok .. if you like spicy relish on your barbecue sandwich.. I don't... the sauce is lightly sweet and thin but I prefer a thicker smoked sauce. The meat was better than most I've had in Birmingham. The atmosphere was good.

Lorilovesgreen#9 Looking up

Food is great just don't expect anything to eat with or on without paying more.

Stephanie Howton

Best BBQ place ever!!!

Yolanda Lee

A lot of meat on the pull pork, well worth it

Chris Poore

Outstanding BBQ! Always good. Love the chow chow.

lee burchfield

Best bbq chicken in Birmingham

edward epperson

When in the UAB area, it's not to be missed!

Linda Bera

Not only is the Bar-B-Que always delicious, but Daniel Dyson and all of the staff of Full Moon Bar-B-Que did an amazing job of catering The Annual Picnic for UAB Staff Council and feeding over 1,000 people! The half-moon cookies are still my favorite - you won't find a better cookie anywhere!

Vincent Williams


Borden LeSieur

Full Moon always provides the best food and service! Whether it is a large scale event for 500 people, or lunch in the store. The quality of food and service provided by the staff is top notch!

Beverly Brown

If You Are Looking For Great BBQ This Is The Place. Service Is Great. I Love It.

Adrian Bennett

Good food. Small sitting room.

Victoria Wright

THE BEST SAUCE I HAVE EVER TASTED! This was my very first time eating at this restaurant. Let me tell you... You will not be disappointed. The meat was tender and the sauce was sent from the heavens. If I didn't have to eat my lunch at my desk, I would've definitely run my finger around the rim. I will definitely be back. This location can get crowded quickly BUT it is well worth any wait.

Natalie Ross

Great food, great service.

Beverly Slater

It’s was on the 4th of July and they were slammed! Wonderful people who work there!

Derrick Harper

The best bbq I have had this far in Birmingham...

Ashley Hess

The team at Full Moon provided excellent service for my wedding! They thought of everything, including things I forgot. The service provided was professional and the food was wonderful!

Dee Prince

Delicious food!

Tim Lynch

We've been coming here since Pat opened in 1986. Classic and delious. I love the outside meat, sliced with sauce on the side.

TeDarius Forrest

Great food! Lunch was hott. Wait wasnt too long. Way too crowd!

Viola Chaney

Took too long for a drive through. The sandwich is usually goo, but it was too much fat and chewy meat. Then not enough barbecue sauce.

Gwendolyn Cook

The real barbeque flavor of their ruins. And they've got the best slaw in town

suzanne Randall

In my opinion the best barbecue in Birmingham!

Ouida Ferguson

They don't serve brisket at this location so I was forced to try something else. I got the Classic Rib plate which was really good. The ribs were tender and I got plenty of sauce.

Judy Hunt

Treated us well, but yet they was fixing to close for the day and respected us well we eat! Loved it

Barry Bailey

Great food. Love the Service ( The FIRST store small menu keep it simple. )

Tim Metcalfe


Freebie Babe

Over rated expensive bland food minus the bbq. I wont lie the bbq is superb but it stops there. I was so disappointed in tbe cole slaw and mac n cheese. It taste like cafeteria food. This was my first and last time visiting. The woman who took my order at the drive thru was very unfriendly. Never again.

Mindy Tobin

Our little family loves to eat here. They are reasonably priced and they have great customer service!

Arionna W

Delicious as always, just wish it was a larger Location

Alvin Johnson

Ribs were great

Rusty Sears

This is the original Full Moon BBQ opened by Pat James and has been serving BBQ for over 30 years. You don't stay in one place that long by doing things wrong. This is a quintessential BBQ joint. Nothing fancy. Just great food and great service.

Phil Urbanski

Middle of the road barbeque. Very overpriced.

Ms Jacquelyn Jackson

Their barbeque is great. Thanks

William Bruton

In a town full of Southern BBQ From love Moon in Lakeview stands above them all. The sliced pork plate will take you to a happy place every time.

Chris Peeks

Best BBQ in Bham! I usually get a pork plate with beans and fries.

Shirrell Moore

They ribs have gotten where they are cook all the way you can eat half cooked pork it will kill you and they are not lean some have alot of fat!

Jane Southerland

This is a really good place to eat or order takeout. The food is consistently good, and the service is very good. I am looking forward to the new Full Moon Barbecue opening in Trussville.

Dorothy Carter


Kayla Perdue

This was my first time eating here and definitely will not be my last. It really was great.

lamont dawson

Food is great prices are high

Harvey Jones

great food

Mrs. Laqnda Hammonds

This bbq is one of the best I've had out of 3 restaurants I've been too.

Always a solid choice for a fine pork sandwich. Be sure and consider the Moon Dog and save room for one of their homemade desserts.

Julia Griswould

Very good

Bridgette Jeter

Delicious and great drive thru service

Cara Ireland Duncan

We used Full Moon Catering for our wedding reception, and the experience was wonderful! Daniel was so helpful during the entire process. The food was great!

Will .Casey

Great food. Love the atmosphere as well.

Eddie Ethridge Jr

My second time visiting and I enjoyed both visits.

Lantrez Wilson

Loved it you get a lot for your money

Ann Price

Delicious ribs, bbq sauce a little too sweet but good

Emmanuel Buisson

The food was pretty good. The sauce was very tasty but it was a little cold. Granted it could have been because it was right before they closed, but overall it was good

Regina Downing

I have been a Full Moon BBQ downtown customer for 20 years. I have tried other BBQ Restaurants, and you can’t beet Full Moon. The food is fantastic. You get what you pay for. The employees are great. What more could you ask for. They have it all.

Desa Osborn

Awesome! There is no other way to describe the service provided! And the food, Fabulous! More than just BBQ and Full Moon has now been placed at the top of "the list". Thank you Danial for making our event effortless and delightful! Red Gates at Kelly Creek is more than happy to have you back!

Shante' Ross

Great food and service. I wish they would fix the microphone at the order menu

Rose Parker

Always worth the drive,for good food and friendly service

Barbara Gabbard

Great food! First time there! They have drive-thru!

Big Byrd

Tiny location with big taste. It's easy to miss the drive through which is on 5th Ave, just to the right of the building. Parking extends out behind the building, but if you get there at a rush, you may find yourself waiting elbow to elbow. Despite all the space complaints, the food is worth it all.

Denny Hulsey

Full Moon did our catering for my son's rehearsal dinner. They did a fantastic job! Their staff was professional and went above and beyond to make sure our event went off without a hitch. Daniel was over the crew that helped us out. He made sure everything went as planned and was a lifesaver! I will be using Full Moon, and Daniel, again for catering in the future.

Will Young

So good!

Sean Simonpietri

Small restaurant with lots of charm. Great food. Quick line.

Sharon Dabbs Johnson

Have changed the way they cook the ribs. Does not taste like the Full Moon I know and love!

Jason McCrory

One of the best barbecue restaurants in Alabama. The food is amazing but the sauce will keep you coming back for years. Don't forget to try the half moon cookies!

Pat Lair

Best BBQ ribs!

Lynn Collins

Great food and friendly service

Jason Moore

Full Moon, you guys make Jim N Nicks look like some kids playing with their daddy's grill without permission. Top marks, got my to go order in just a couple of minutes, sweet tea was just right, and didn't even have to ask for the barbecue sauce, it was already in the bag. Thank you, this is what service should be like. Also didn't hurt that it was absolutely delicious.


Daniel was great to work with and the food, setup, price, all inclusive deal at Full Moon was great! I would recommend Full Moon to anyone. We used them for a wedding reception for about 180 people and they had everything we needed.


Always tasty! No complaints.

Scott Simon

Did a gret job catering. Helped us decide the menu and did the set up. Good food with even better help.

Belinda Brennan

Daniel and his team did an outstanding job for our staff. The only suggestion I would make is to get here a little earlier for the night shift. Other than that, GREAT JOB! Everyone enjoyed the food!

Jerome Calhoun

Good service...friendly people.

Fan Wave

amanda george


Thomas Roseman

One of a few locations around the area. The place was busy and small but felt like a local staple with people coming in for lunch. The bbq was good and a southern style of sauce. Took about 5min to place an order and another 10 or so to pickup the order. The family enjoyed it and would go again if we're in the area.

Arnella Brown

Bought bbq pork sandwiches got home had bbq shopped fat sandwiches.I live about 8 miles from southside location when i called back to tell them i was told to bring sandwiches back and they would check them.The lady i talk to was very rude told me to either bring them back that was store policy and hung up in my face.I will never go to a full moon bbq restaurant again anywhere or recommended them.I'd drive to Bob Sykes in Bessemer 30 min drive with great bbq before i go to full moon bbq again.

Tashia Bishop

Great BBQ! Make sure that you like chow-chow (a type of relish). They automatically put it on your BBQ, but it was pretty good to me. They didn't have any baked potatoes at this location in order to make a BBQ baked potato,

Khilah Whisenant

Excellent food and service

Lauren Sands

Seriously full moon is the best bbq in the state! Always delicious and the half moon cookies are a must try.

Angelia Coger

Food was hot and delicious

i12bNice Smith

The place was great food was fantastic will be visiting them again

Louie Martini

Customer service was below par. The attendant was not very helpful, or friendly, and rushed us to order when there was nobody else in line. It made us feel unwelcome. The barbecue was average. The ribs were chewy. The chicken lacked flavor. It needed plenty of their Alabama white sauce to help it out. The pulled pork was good but tasted like it had just been reheated. The baked beans were a little on the sweet side, and tasted like they came out of a can. The Chow Chow servings were very small. A pulled pork sandwich with 1 side, barbecue plate dinner and three fountain drinks was $32. $$.

maharet64 .

Food is usually very good. Prices are too high for barbecue similar to their biggest competitor.
